From Start to Finish

Here we are this is how' Break Time' was picked up again, after approximately 18 years, in April 2010.

I enjoyed doing the three 'H's , that is head, hair and hat, as the colours were really cheerful, not the hat obviously but it makes a great foil for the other bright colours.

With a degree of mumbling about the chart (hand done), the colours getting boring on the trousers, the vast amount of backstitching... Here he is today. I've put a measure on the photo so that you can see he really is long, it is almost the width of our two seater settee.


I've now got to decide what my next UFO is going to be. I think I'll pick one that hasn't actually been in the gloom cupboard for as long as my other ones and also that probably hasn't as much to finish on it. I'm leaning to a Mill Hill Christmas one.....final decision in a few days.!!

Thanks for your support in my mammoth UFO without you it might never have seen the light of day again.
Till next time....Keep going with your own UFO's and good luck.
